Quick Captures

More rain is moving into our area for the night.  I am sure I speak for the dogs, cows, and chickens when I say.....enough is enough.  



Though, the weather did give some good light on the drive home from work.  



I took a few quick shots with my phone and my daughter thought we were never going to make it home.  




Despite the moans and groans from my passenger, we did make it home before the rain came.

  7. Great, clear, shots. I think many of us are preoccupied with the weather at the moment: and I used to think it was such a distinctly British conversation topic!

  9. We have enough mud to last a while. I need the ground to freeze to get in to get wood with the truck. Sunny at the moment which is nice for a change.

  17. Let's be thankful for your phone as we look at these marvelous pictures. A long view is supposed to be good for our well-being and you certainly captured some here. At first I thought I would comment about the first picture, then I saw the second and wanted to say something about it, and then the third one just blew me away. Please tell your daughter she needs to develop patience when a true artist is at work.

  23. Beautiful photos, Michelle! I love the colors of the sky in all three. We have been having very dry weather lately, and warmer than usual for this time of the year. I thought for sure we'd have a white Christmas, but now I'm not so sure!

  24. such a fabulous set of photos, all of that wide open space intoxicating!

  25. You seem to be getting a bit bored with the rainy weather? After 5 years of drought, I'll take all the rain we can get. It's better than snow too. lol

    Glorious light in the images...and wonderful colors!!!!!

  27. Beautiful photos...we always complain about rain either how much we need it or how much we wish it would stop

    ReplyDelete
  28. When the light is perfect it's important to stop and take photos. Someday your daughter will understand. :))
